‘Ladies Who Chai’ events will aim to provide a forum for women in our South Asian community to expand their network, build their businesses and foster friendships. And of course there will be chai/tea because shouldn’t you start all great relationships with a good cup of tea?

In our 3rd ever, Ladies Who Chai event, we’re bringing together a panel of women to showcase the art of blogging for business and translating those fans, followers and that engagement into real sales. If you built it, will they come? That’s what we’re looking to help you answer.

How can you gain your share of voice? How do you decide who to engage with and how? How can you make those ‘likes’, ‘tweets’ count to your bottom line? Our speakers will talk about what it takes to grow your business from both the small business and corporation perspective.


With successful mompreneurs sharing their business tips and stories along with a big brand like Chevrolet Canada sharing how to use social media to make it count. Join us for a dynamic panel and get your questions answered! And meet other South Asian moms who are entrepreneurs just like you.
